Many of our customers have received a letter via the US Post office from a company called DNS Services containing a "Fake Invoice".
This company has been sending realistic looking bills like the one below, which are really just a solicitation for their DNS services (A service that Foremost Media hosting customers already enjoy for free. While this practice is not technically illegal, it is pretty unethical and has caused a lot of confusion for businesses receiving the "fake bill". If you read the fine print on this invoice you should see this statement:
THIS IS A SOLICITATION FOR THE ORDER OF GOOD AND SERVICES, OR BOTH, AND NOT A BILL, INVOICE, OR STATEMENT OF ACCOUNT DUE. YOU ARE UNDER NO OBLIGATION TO MAKE ANY PAYMENTS ON ACCOUNT OF THIS OFFER UNLESS YOU ACCEPT THIS OFFER.
We at Foremost Media strongly recommend that if you receive this bill you just throw it away. We do not recommend using their services. The Foremost Media Name appears on the bill because we currently host your DNS and we have no association with this company.
If you ever have any questions about invoices you receive regarding your website or online marketing don't hesitate to contact us.
